remaking the 1980 hit film was not bad enough an idea, Now to try and drum up
new fans for the hopeless remake of Fame
(2009), we now have the Fame Dance
Workout (2010) where we are learning dance steps form the film, yet also
supposed to lose weight doing them. After
an awkward introduction, we get the 74 minutes in chapterized form and four
course, we are also supposed to go see the movie we missed and forget we had
many good reasons to do so in the first place, save poor critics like…
still, stars Kristy Flores, Kherington Payne and Paul McGill show up only under
their first name on the packaging as if we are in The Mickey Mouse Club. It is
very condescending and shallow.
Fortunately, they are not and prove that without any flash or overkill,
they were appealing enough to be in such a film, but that film was so butchered
and mauled that they do not get the chance they do here to be themselves.
way, it is a curio for the workout crowd, but should be skipped otherwise.
anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image was shot in HD video and looks just
fine, though it is likely 1080i and only so good. Color is not bad. The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is the norm for
such a release and is also not bad. There
are no extras.
